If you’re reading this, you’re experiencing my site first-hand. Which means there isn’t a lot to say other than to run down some design and technical notes for those of you interested pixel-shifting.
Design wise, I’ve gone for a lightweight, type-heavy, and image-light design, using color, strong typographical hierachy and a hint of consistent decoration with a triangular motif. The gradients are there because, well, who doesn’t like a nice gradient? That and iOS7 has brought them in from Siberia and made their use almost acceptable again.
The whole site is of course responsive across screen sizes, uses REMs for sizing and purposely doesn’t even think about the time-sink of faffing and asset production around “Retina images”. Every graphic is sized between 1.5x and 2x and delivered to every device, just like the web intended. I don’t think the world really needs many more social sharing or Like buttons either, so I‘ve kept all that stuff to a minimum too.
I hope you’re enjoying poking around the site. If you spot anything wrong, broken or just plain bad, let me know.
